Elkhart County Commissioners and Elkhart County Council, looks like you finally got your wish. We all know you guys know so much more about this virus and what's best for the general public than any medical person would. Maybe one of you experts should be the next Elkhart County Health Officer NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Dr. Wait for your service. It is amazing you lasted this long after all the dealings you had to have with the anti vax, anti science, anti human decency people. The council that voted against receiving $3,000,000 in grant assistance was only the icing on the cake. If they are not going to listen to science and medical professionals, then they deserve what will be coming next. It is embarrassing that this was on national news and they reacted because of right wing, pro trump conspiracies.


9 months and she's out of there! I wish Fauci was gone!
